Mission: The mission of The Tanner Seebaum Foundation is to positively impact the lives of children with tumors of the brain and spine through funding and supporting viable medical research that will lead to more effective treatment options and ultimately a cure for this tragic disease. Further, we have three core values that guide us in achieving our goals. We believe in.... FUNDING RESEARCH, FINDING NEW TREATMENTS, FOR A CANCER FREE FUTURE
Results: We have raised over $750,000 since 2006, however, there is still not a cure for Ependymoma Brain Tumors. We must continue to raise funds for research.
Target demographics: Children with Ependymoma Brain Tumors of the Brain and Spine
Direct beneficiaries per year: Dr. Nicholas Foreman @ Children's Hospital Colorado
This foundation fills a niche in the vast pediatric cancer research community - specifically focusing on Ependymoma brain tumor research. The Tanner Seebaum Foundation plays a vital role in funding the important research needed for Ependymoma brain tumors. What is most impressive about the Tanner Seebaum Foundation is the fact that it is fully managed through volunteers - nobody gets paid to run this foundation, yet quality runs throughout the organization.
